Bye bye Granny and Grandad

Granny and Grandad set off on their journey home today after a fun and action-packed fortnight. They came laden with Christmas presents, new trousers, craft supplies and medications and left with different Christmas presents, birthday presents and letters to post. We had a lovely time with them and they will be missed!

Apologies for the lack of blogging recently. We've been away a lot and the internet has been non-functional too. However, all well here and internet functioning again at present (the most recent problem was someone cutting a tree down on top of the cable....)

So, with Mr B's new camera to play with we have taken more (and better!) photos than ever! Need to do a proper sort out and edit and will probably post them in batches so as to not be overwhelming. For today, just a few of the best and worst pics...

this one likes going underwater like his big sister

Anyone else notice a resemblence to a certain uncle on the father's side in this one?

toasted marshmallows
And two lovely ones to finish


  1. Lovely photos! Glad you all had a good time.

  2. What a fantastic set of photos! Great camera/photographer(s)!

  3. Fantastic photos.
    Not sure H will be too keen on one.
    Good to read you back. Had just assumed Grannie and Grandad had kept you busy.
    Glad you've had a good time.

  4. Lovely pictures. I especially liked the presents pictures from the previous post. Lots of love to you all, B xxx

  5. When I saw the short version of your post, on my Blogger Dashboard, all I saw at first were the title 'Bye bye Granny and Grandad' and the photo of a very satisfied looking leopard - I feared the worst :-)
